Is this change really meant for the 3.x series,
or is this the result of some unfortunate mistake?
If it is really meant for 3.x:

deadline that Daniel set for user interface changes in the 3.x series
is now quite far in the past, and that change breaks already deployed
persistent volumes that use the "old" agreed upon name.
FWIW, as far as Tails is concerned, either backward-compatibility is
ensured, or we'll have to ship a patched live-boot (again), or we'll
have to add some custom logics to rename existing deployed
configuration files :(
